Frugal Friday: Castañer Espadrilles

One of my favorite summertime buys is the espadrille, and well-priced, completely adorable Castañer is a staple in my closet. The quality is mid-range, which is all you need in this kind of shoe. They tend to get a little roughed up on beachy vacations anyway. These look great and can be lived in without guilt.

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Wedge Boot

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Boots: A Leg Up

Okay, thigh high is almost an understatement here. These are basically pants (albeit ones that require a nice dress and in spite of what some forgetful starlets think, a pair of panties!). Leave it to Maison Martin Margiela to have us questioning whether shoes are pants or pants are shoes.

Gucci Caroline Crystal-Band Espadrille

Gucci Caroline Crystal-Band Espadrille: Sweet Caroline

I’m ready to start shopping for summer, and the first item on my list is always the same – espadrille wedges. I wear them from February to October in LA (sporting them during the holidays wouldn’t feel right, even at 72 degrees!). They are my favorite seasonal essentials, so beloved that I decided this year I must find a pair that can be worn all day and night – casually while the sun’s still out, then dressed up for the evening.

Ugg Alternatives

UGG Alternatives: Let It Snow!

Lately my posts have been centered around a ski trip I just took. I absolutely hate UGGs and refuse to wear them, whether it’s 90 degrees outside (what are those women thinking??) or snowing. But falling on icy roads in mountain-high heels? Not so fun. There has to be another way, and that is the rubber/lug sole route!

Platform Hiking Boots: Take a Hike

At just shy of 6″, Brian Atwood’s sexy rendition (at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,256) of the classic hiking boot will turn heads and heels. Find more options below – just don’t expect to do much hiking in them!

What’s your Celebrity Boot Style?

From long to short, flat to high, celebs have been sporting all kinds of boots this fall. From the uber trendy over-the-knee statement-makers to understated ankle boots, there’s something for everyone. For those looking for something, trendy, yet versatile, ankle boots are the way to go.

Flats vs. Heels

Flats vs. Heels: Sole Sisters

I may have survived fashion week, but my feet didn’t. I do like to complain about shoe discomfort. Like my husband has said again and again, “You are at the comfort stage of life.” Fine, I accept that. At least I know that about myself and can plan out my life accordingly, but Fashion Week is the exception. The heels had to come out, and I had to prepare to be in them for 14 hours a day.

Fall into Gucci

Fall into Gucci: Shoes for Every Occasion

Gucci’s fall shoes are gorgeous, so much so that this could be one-stop shopping for the season’s essentials. They’re very well made, and while not Frugal Snob friendly, the shoes are priced better than those from other established brands (except for the python booties – they also come in leathericon for only $895, though!).

Trend Alert: Mules

I pretty much lived in mules during the ‘90s, and now they’re making a comeback! I’ve kept some old Tod’s over the years for posterity. Tina and I had the same pair that we would wear to death, then buy another pair…of the same shoe. They were that great!
